Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

Sandvox 2.8.7

Send Article to a Friend

Karelia has released Sandvox 2.8 with fixes for minor incompatibilities with OS X 10.9 Mavericks, as well as an issue with partially drawn Site Navigator icons (particularly on Mavericks). The Web site authoring tool also restores word-wrapping to long site menu titles on certain designs (and sub-menu titles on all designs), fixes an alignment issue in the sidebar with Facebook Like buttons, fixes a problem with extracting non-image media files from sites, and improves options for filenames for better compatibility when transferring documents via legacy filesystems. As with many of this week’s software updates with Mac App Store editions, Sandvox remains at its previous version number (2.8.6) at Apple’s software storefront. ($79.99 new, free update from Karelia or the Mac App Store, 38 MB, release notes)
